Cupcakes in Ghiradelli Square?
Yum! Rick and I were expecting to eat chocolate sundaes in Ghiradelli Square until I spotted Kara’s Cupcakes. I can not walk past a cupcake bakery without stopping in (they are my crack-cocaine equivalent). We settled on the pumpkin, fleur de sel (one my new obsessions), and double chocolate cupcakes. The pumpkin cake was moist and the pumpkin spices were perfectly balanced and the cream cheese icing was unbelievably smooth, not one hint of graininess. The double chocolate icing intrigued me, it was light and fluffy. I almost suspect that they use a siphon because that’s how aerated the delicious chocolate buttercream icing felt as it collapsed in my mouth, while coating each taste bud with the buttercream flavor.
